About Tulku Rigdzin Pema Rinpoche
Tulku Rigzin Pema was born in 1948 in Gojo, a district in Kham, Eastern Tibet. At the age of three he was recognized by Adzom Gyalsey Gyurmey as an incarnation of Togden Sonam Wangchuk Rinpoche, an emanation of the Indian mahasiddha Puni. After his enthronement at the Sangnak Dargyeling Monastery in Kham, he studied sutra, tantra, and philosophy with several khenpos. His main teachers were Rago Choktrul, HH Dilgo Khyentse and HH Penor Rinpoches, from whom he received all the vajrayana empowerments and transmissions. Since his escape from Tibet during the early eighties, he stayed mainly with HH Dilgo Khyentse at Shechen Monastery in Nepal, where he played an important role in the preparations and blessings of all the statues.
